AT&T must pay its mobile customers $80 million and cough up an additional $25 million in fees, the FCC has ruled, due to its long history of "cramming" hidden charges into its customers' cell phone bills.
Federal Trade Commission cracked down on cramming, the practice in which a third party sells ringtones, cell phone wallpapers, games, horoscopes, and the like through subscription services that are then recurrently billed by AT&T, T-Mobile, and other wireless carriers.
Unlike T-Mobile, however, which was hit by the FTC with an investigation back in July, AT&T apparently copped to the practice and reached this settlement with the FCC, FTC, and all 50 states' attorney generals.
That T-Mobile case is still ongoing, but, as part of this AT&T deal, the company can no longer offer "premium SMS" charges and have to promise to revise its customers' bills to make them easier to understand.
